Van Gaal gives verdict on Guardiola to United rumours

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has stated that he is not worried about rumours stating that Pep Guardiola could be the new manager of the club next season.

The Bayern Munich boss has stated that he will not renew terms at the Bavarian powerhouses and instead wants to move to England for a new challenge.

The Catalan trainer is one of the most respected coaches in the world after periods of success in both Spain and the Bundesliga.

Talk that Guardiola could be heading to Old Trafford has been gathering pace, with the Red Devils struggling under Van Gaal.

The Dutchman’s role at the club has been questioned after the side dropped out of the top four and were eliminated from the Champions League.

Despite the rumours and mounting pressure on him, Van Gaal is playing it cool in terms of the Guardiola talk and is committed to fulfilling his contract with the Premier League club.

“I’m at the end of my career, so for me it’s not so interesting. For me it’s interesting how I take care of Manchester United and after this season I still have one year to go,” The Guardian quote him as saying.

“He [Guardiola] wants to sniff the culture of England and I wanted that also. I think that it is very good he wants to do that and I didn’t think it will have an impact on his club.

“Every manager has that right to announce that. It’s not for sure he will be the manager of a Premier League club next season.”
